ok, i know this is totally gross, but for the past 4 or 5 days i've noticed that my discharge smells alot like some kind of strong scented cleaning product. It almost reminds me of a mix of amonia and bleach?? My doctor keeps swearing up and down that i don't have an infection, but come on now, everytime i pull my underwear down to pee it reminds me of cleaning a bath tub or something, lol. Has anyone else experienced this late in pregnancy?

You dont have a yeast infection do you because some start off like that and you can get them alot during pregnancy.

personally i think your 'amniotic fluid' smells like wet towels Gag!



Ammonia smelling vagina -- yah its probably normal . Especially if your doc isn't concerned, it really smells funny during pregnancy especially the closer you get to the end of it all .

My doc also said it could be from the mixture of sweat (because its getting hotter out), and/or because your leaking urine, and don't realize it. Gross I know, but that's what I was told.

I have had the same smell during all 4 of my pregnancies. And like you, the doctor has confirmed that there is nothing wrong. Just that some women get an odd chemical smell to them.

Discharge is supposed to smell a little acidic I think

Amniotic Fluid is sometimes described as smelling like bleach. I would make sure you aren't leaking fluid.

I've noticed that smell a few times when I've used the bathroom, I just always figured it was my urine smelling strong for that day.
